Three-foot-tall man in court for fighting

Ainsworth Sookhan, a three foot tall man, who al­leged­ly struck an­oth­er man with a wheel span­ner dur­ing a fight in San Fer­nan­do, has been charged.

Sookhan, 29, a dri­ver, of La Ro­maine is ex­pect­ed to ap­pear be­fore a San Fer­nan­do Mag­is­trate on Fri­day charged with wound­ing Shel­don Ham­let with in­tent.


He was charged by PC Khem­raj on Thurs­day two days af­ter he was ar­rest­ed.

Videos of the in­ci­dent were record­ed by on­look­ers and went vi­ral on so­cial me­dia.

Ham­let lost his eye in the in­ci­dent, which oc­curred last Sat­ur­day at Cof­fee Street.

Sookhan said he was ply­ing his car for hire near the La Ro­maine taxi stand when he and Ham­let had an ex­change of words, which end­ed in a scuf­fle.

Sookhan then went to the po­lice sta­tion where he made a re­port.

A third man who was in­volved in the fight has not been ar­rest­ed.
